God Said NO!!

I asked God to take away my habit. 
God said, No.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.
His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience. 
God said, No.
Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness.  
God said, No.
I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain. 
God said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me. 
 
I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.
You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No.
I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things. 

I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said...

Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
